Its hard to point out if one competitor is better than others. Ernst Vaumund was without doubt ahead of most of his competitors, and he had a finger into most major races in Norway trough a decade. And not to forget, thanks to his efforts Harley Davidson was ahead of any other brand in the Norwegian race scene during the hectic twenties.
Ernst worked as a salesman at Sørensen & Balchen until an early retirement, becoming their best seller ever during his career. When we know Harley had chosen S&B to be their official representatives in Norway we understand why Harley did well on race tracks too.
Above is one image from ISDT in 1923 where Ernst and his brother Christinus was a part of a strong Norwegian team.
